Reward Posted for Bank Arson in Milwaukee Violence

There is now a ten-thousand dollar reward for tips that lead to a conviction in a bank fire during Milwaukee’s Sherman Park violence in August. The U-S Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives put up the reward, and the agency is joining Milwaukee Police in asking for people’s help in solving the arson at a BMO Harris Bank branch. Video from surveillance cameras was released yesterday. Police say several people broke windows, and one person started a fire that spread through the building and caused one-million dollars of damage. It happened during the second day of violence in Sherman Park, which followed the police shooting death of Sylville Smith — and officials say the bank was among eight businesses and six police cars damaged.
